Top 10 Televisiol Happenings

1. "Who Wants to Be a A Millionaire?"
Of course this is a successful show with half a dozen imi-
tators. Whoever thought of combining mindless, banal trivia
with obscene wealth has really tapped into something special.
2. "The Sopranos"
Who wants to be in the Mafia? Apparently the critics.
HBO's "The Sopranos" has people ecstatic about its season
premiere this month. The show is an example of how good
TV can be and how everyone loves wholesome stories about
the Mob.
3.Y2K
Really, it's going to be the year 2000? There has never been
anything more annoying than the hype and coverage of what
turned out only to result in some really cool footage of the
Eiffel Tower.
4. "Ally" and "Snoops" cancelled
It looks like David E. Kelley might need a rest. Though he's
known for quality programs, whoever thought of making a
half hour show that used old "Ally McBeal" plots made a bad
call. Maybe it was Regis.
5. "Buffy" episode pulled
The WB show "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" had to cancel a
show where the cast destroys their high school with guns and
bombs. The episode was cancelled because of the killings at
Columbine where Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold used guns
and bombs in their plan to destroy their school.
6. FOX yanks "Action"
Blame it on a bad time slot, or getting moved around to
accommodate the World Series, but in the end "Action" was
just too good for TV Critics loved the sendup of a sleazy
movie exec and everyone else hated it. Perhaps Hollywood is
more amused by itself than anyone else is.

7. Critics relate to "Freaks and Geeks"
The NBC show about suburban kids in the early eighties
has impressed the critics. It takes risks, like having Eli, the
mentally challenged kid, dump Lindsay. This was depressing
but different. It has moved to Mondays which will hopefully
improve the ratings.
8. Clooney leaves "ER"
"ER" has not been entertaining for a while but this was the
last straw. The show officially sucks. Someone should put it
out of its misery.
9. "The Tom Green Show"
MTV can be so bad yet so good. "The Tom Green Show"
has taken assault humor to a new level. Who could not be
entertained by watching a grown man interrogate his parents
about their sex life or put dog feces on a microphone and ask
people why they like to live in New Jersey? He's brilliant and
much funnier than anyone who used to be considered funny,
like the original SNL cast.
10. The rebirth of "Friends"
Once again, "Friends" is officially funny. The show started
strong but was unbearable to watch for a few years.
Examples: Who cares if Ross marries some boring English
girl? We get it, Chandler's sarcastic. However, when Ross
married Rachel at a chapel in Vegas when they were drunk
and never got it annulled, that was funny.
Much of the newfound laughter appeared through the reg-
ulars' discovery of physical humor. Rachel and Phoebe ran
through the park like little and extremely spastic kids, and
Monica and Ross performed their dance routine from junior
high on Dick Clark's "Rockin' New Year's Eve." They're a lit-
tle more dorky and a lot more loveable. It's nice to have them
back.
